Integration Story

Plasma Network Management uses libmm-qt in order to communicate with network manager. Its code is in the plasma-nm repository, branch 'frameworks'.

Porting status

  • libnm-qt (NetworkManager) has been ported to Qt5 (in "qt5" branch)
  • libmm-qt (ModemManager) has been ported to Qt5 (in "qt5" branch), but isn't functional yet due to being in the process of porting to ModemManager 1.0, it's built optional, support can easily be readded later again.
  • Widget has been ported, connection details need work

Roadmap

  • Functional enough for December release
  • Finishing touches in Q1
